In the first week of the new term we have been linking our learning to the story of Hansel and Gretel. We have enjoyed lots of different activities!
Welcome to Class Two! I am looking forward to seeing you all and finding out the exciting things you have been doing this summer. Thank you so much for all of the hard work and support you have given to the TASC projects your children have created, this will have really helped to engage them ready for the term ahead! This term our topic is The Romans and in Science we will be learning about Rocks and Changes of State. All children will be given a reading diary to record when they have been reading. It is really important that they not only read to you but that they listen to you read. This is a great way for them to model their own reading. Your child should being reading a minimum of 3 times per week, which will need to be signed by an adult in their reading records. I will collect them in and sign them on Mondays and reward reading with Dojos. Thank you for your support in this.
The children will have a times table test every Friday and will be told which they should be learning soon, regular practice at home is important to support their learning in school. This year, swimming will be on a Monday morning for all children in KS1 and KS2 and P.E lessons will be on a Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure P.E kit consists of black or blue shorts/bottoms, a navy blue P.E top and suitable trainers. Please name each item to avoid it getting lost. P.E/swimming kits should be carried in a draw string bag or something similar as rucksacks take up too much room in our tiny cloakroom.
Spellings will be taught and tested in school but you will receive some of the key year 3/4 words to support your children in learning at the beginning of each half term which will then be tested at the end of the half term. Please note that all long hair needs to be tied up and appropriate school uniform worn (no trainers/ brightly coloured headbands, nail polish etc).If you need to talk to me for any reason I am available on a Monday, Wednesday and Thursdays after school so please pop in and see me. Thank you for support, I am looking forward to an exciting and successful year ahead!
